Last year, Maryland was expected to be the latest state to legalize “gay” marriage. But the heavily Democratic legislature got a big surprise as thousands of people of all races and backgrounds rose up to demand the effort be stopped.  Their effort was successful but now the battle lines are being drawn a second time as the legislature takes up the issue again.

“They need to do it when their election cycle is not up, so the voters don’t remember,” Pastor Derek McCoy tells WND.

McCoy is the director of the Maryland Marriage Alliance, a coalition of activists committed to preserving the traditional definition of marriage. He explains how his side was able to win the fight last year and why he’s confident again this year.

“If it goes to referendum they will lose … we will defeat this measure. I believe in the people of Maryland.”

He also tells us why the largely Democratic black community is so overwhelmingly opposed to “gay” marriage.
